Save Your Sponges

-Clean and disinfect sponges in the dishwasher by placing them in the utensil compartment.

-Launder sponges in hot water with the rest of your clothes, and then toss them in the dryer.

-Place DAMP sponges in the microwave on high for one minute. A dry sponge will catch on fire.

-Soak sponges in a solution of a cup of chlorine bleach and a gallon of water. Then rinse.

-When sponges start to fall apart or they develop a strong odor, it’s time to throw them out.
